Homeowners with backyards often find the space goes unused or is not utilized as much as they’d like it to be. Even for those with landscaping design experience, it’s challenging to take a blank slate and turn it into a comfortable, stylish, and functional sanctuary. Don’t worry—we’re here to help. If you’re considering a backyard renovation, be sure to add these elements to create the ultimate oasis.
Finding respite from the hot Arizona sun can be a difficult task, but the shade provided by a pergola will instantly make your backyard much more comfortable no matter the season. Pergolas, which provide cover over your patio or any section of your backyard, also add style—and a place to affix lights, ceiling fans or misters. Here’s the best part: They’re easy to install, so adding a pergola can jumpstart your backyard remodel with minimal effort.
Likely the most intense project when remodeling the backyard, an outdoor kitchen is another element that adds style and function to your space. Cooking inside while your guests are in the backyard is isolating and full of interruptions, but an outdoor kitchen allows for a more seamless entertaining experience. It also makes al fresco dining that much easier with far less distance between where the food is prepared and served.
A patio serves many functions in a backyard, so it’s a necessity for anyone doing renovations. For one, it’s a transition point from your home’s interior to the outdoor space. The patio is also an extension of your home and can make it look like there is more square footage. However, because it’s separated by a door, it looks like a wall-less room where you can place patio furniture and entertain guests.
Enclosed Arizona Room
If you prefer a room with walls, an Arizona room is an enclosed addition that typically faces the backyard and lets in the natural light but not the weather. This ensures your furniture (and anything else in the room) are protected from heat, rain, wind, and the monsoons Arizona gets every year. As a bonus, enclosed Arizona rooms add value to your home because they can count as an additional bedroom.
Typically the centerpiece of a living room or family room, a fireplace is an element of comfort that can help you bring the indoors outside. Friends, family, and loved ones can gather at your outdoor fireplace, or use it to complement your outdoor kitchen.
